Is it me or did there back 4 struggle to handle the pace of some of our players? For me i'd have Pittman on from from the start Sunday and really inject some pace upfront (Drop Andy Carroll to the bench)

There will be arguments for a couple of changes, namely JPP and Clay from the start.

it's funny how Palmer has gone from Zlatan to Andy Carroll in such a short space of time. Would stick with Clay and JPP. Hannah could be an option for Palmer on tonight's performance imo.

Bar his woeful miss in the 7th minute I thought Palmer was a bystander for most of the game. Vast majority of link up play and high balls won was by JLL who I thought had a very good game. MOTM pearson by a country mile though. Great turn out by Town fans aslo, very well done to all who made the long journey so glory hunters like me can look at getting travel arrangements for Wembley sorted by Sunday night. UTFM!

No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

You're right Lukeo.you can see why they have conceded so many goals. V basic at the back and apart from Turley v little pace. You've got to remember were nursing both Palmer n Pittman through games.neither are fully fit. More worrying foe me is the right back problem. Toto has pace and usually his passing is pretty good but he was awful tonight,the only weak link IMHO. I know I will get shot down but I'd be inclined to see big not there.proper right back, bags of experience and not slow like parslow
One other thing .pace. We have lacked it for soooo many years, along with the steel shown by this group this has been the big improvement this season

IMHO BIgnot would get done in the air all game long with their diagonal high balls. Precisely why Toto was selected there. Magnay got beaten the other side on occasions too so worries me that Biggie wouldnt be able to cope with that

Toto did a good job there, but his distribution doesn't seem to have come on very much in a whole season. It's odd, he gets the ball and looks calm, looks around for options then gives it away hurriedly.

Toto looked a little awkward on the ball but for the reasons Chris points out he's definitely the best option we have.

I was pleased PH did not go the Parsley option. I think he would have been bullied too easily. Not many manage to bully Toto, although I agree he could have pAssed the ball better.
